This week’s profiled resource is titled "Advocacy Toolkit: A Guide to Influencing Decisions that Improve Children’s Lives " and comes to us from UNICEF. This Toolkit outlines eight foundational areas that can help strengthen an office’s capacity for advocacy, and covers several crosscutting aspects of advocacy including monitoring and evaluating advocacy, managing knowledge in advocacy, managing risks in advocacy, building relationships and securing partnerships for advocacy, and working with children and young people in advocacy.
UNICEF has an exceptional history of advocating to protect and promote children’s and women’s rights. The Advocacy Toolkit stems from this, systematizing and coordinating both internal and external advocacy expertise, as well as developing a few innovative approaches. The Toolkit provides a set of practical tools to help UNICEF staff and partners in the development and management of their advocacy work.
The Advocacy Toolkit is applicable for all levels of the organization as a resource for building a structured approach for sustained advocacy.
